As borders slowly open and the last few weeks of the European summer approach, one thing is certain… Sail Turkey is only just getting started!
If you’ve been daydreaming of a week spent dabbling between the sundeck and beautiful bays on a colourful floatie… Then take a look at a few of our favourite perks of the 8-Day Sail in Turkey!
1. All meals included
You heard correctly – Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all prepared onboard by your Chef and included in the tour price! From local Turkish delicacies to fresh seafood, you’ll get the chance to try a range of delicious meals while watching the sun rise and set over the picturesque bays each day.
2. Swim stops all day, every day
Forget waiting until midday before the boat anchors and the Skipper announces ‘Swim Stop.” Sail Turkey is filled with plenty of opportunities to jump off the Gulet and cool down in the ‘blue-flag certified’ bays and beaches. Blue flag certification means these bays have been internationally recognised amongst the most clean, pristine and serene waters around the world! In fact, Turkey has over 460 beaches that were awarded the Blue Flag certification in 2020!
Each day you’ll be swimming at new destinations, including small coves, blue lagoons and crystal-clear bays filled with Caretta Caretta turtles.
3. Explore a new port-side town everyday
Sail Turkey isn’t just about taking things easy on the Gulet each day and night! There’s also plenty of opportunity to explore the seaside ports and lively cobblestone towns.
Experience sunset from the peak of Nicholas Island, paraglide over Oludeniz, explore the local port town of Kas, eat your weight in Turkish Delight while wandering the markets of Fethiye or walk to the ancient castle of Simena for incredible views over the pristine bays. All of these activities (and more) you can do on tour!
4. It’s affordable!
One of the great perks of visiting Turkey is that travellers can stretch their Dollars, Pound and Turkish Lira very far! The cost of eating out is extremely affordable and is the perfect excuse to try some of the delicious, fresh seafood dishes in the seaside ports. Plus, the average cost for a bottle of local beer at the markets is about 15 Lira (less than £2)!
With meals, accommodation and transport all included in the cost of the Travel Talk Sail, all that’s left to pay is your bar tab onboard the Sail, plus any entrance fees or optional activities that you wish to check out while at the ports.
5. Sleep under the stars
It’s become a tradition of sorts to sleep on deck on the traditional Gulet boats. While twin and double cabins are of course included for accommodation on Sail, most of our travellers decide to spend their nights sleeping on the comfortable sunbeds on deck.
Why, you ask?… More like why not? You’ll catch the starry sky glistening with a few of your new close mates every night. Plus, you’ll wake up to some jaw-dropping sunrises!
6. Travel with peace of mind
